The Barron County Sheriff's Office says its investigation of a baby's death is still active.

Emergency responders were called Tuesday morning shortly before 4:30 A-M about a 10-month-old baby which wasn't breathing. The Bear Lake Haugen Fire Department, a Lakeview Medical Center ambulance and a Life Link helicopter were all dispatched to the location just outside Haugen. Life-saving measures were attempted, but the baby died before it could be transported.
